The Black Hollies 

8 p.m. Sunday, May 11. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue

First, melt down your favorite Who, Kinks, Stones, Motown and regular ol' Hollies records, run them through a blender and toss them in your freezer. Wait 30 years to pull them out and throw 'em into the microwave. Three minutes later, presto: the Black Hollies. Sounding more like London ca. 1965 than New Jersey ca. 2008, the Black Hollies takes its cues from the power-poppin' mods of that former era and adds a little soul and psychedelia for flavor. The quartet, featuring former members of the Rye Coalition, offered up its second full-length earlier this year, distinguishing itself as a garage band of sophistication — or at least that's what those sport coats and turtlenecks would have us believe.
